The ultramodern Arlington Center for Dentistry looks more like a spaceship than a dentist's office. Sliding glass doors give way to a private waiting room equipped with a flat-screen TV and bright-red leather couch. Beyond its translucent walls, massive pillars painted gold and bright green pepper the path to the reception desk, interspersed with more flat-screen TVs to entertain patients perched upon circular benches that look as though they might lift into the sky at any moment.
The smooth, corner-less aesthetic hints at the state-of-the-art treatments administered beyond the waiting room, where seven experienced doctors??among them dentists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, endodontists, and pedondontists??strive to ensure a healthy, happy future for each smile. With an emphasis on creating lasting doctor/patient relationships, they gently guide mouths on custom treatment plans that can include everything from invisible braces to chip-covering Lumineers. Full-mouth and panoramic radiographs combine with comprehensive periodontal charting and bite analysis to pinpoint problems with precision, and model wax-ups of teeth present a mockup of how teeth will look after cosmetic treatments or if they fail to give up their candle-snacking habit.
Dr. Im, along with the team at Fairlington Dental, wrangles misaligned chompers into pearly white parallels with clear Invisalign orthodonture. In an office scented by baking cookies, guests sip gourmet coffee or tea and dunk hands at the warm paraffin wax spa station before settling in to watch DirecTV in the exam room. There, a clinical exam and a set of photographs blueprint a plan and provide tooth-fairy tabloids with periodontal portraiture. After impressions yield a one-of-a-kind maw mold, technicians create a set of aligners as unique as a snowflake's fingerprint. Patients swap in a new pair of tooth tamers about every two weeks until smiles become fluent in straight talk. This Groupon includes the cost of Invisalign's monthly office visits, though it does not cover the cost of a retainer ($450).
Roca Dental’s father-and-son dentist team straightens teeth effectively and discreetly using the cutting-edge Invisalign system. After a thorough examination to verify the patient's oral health, teeth have their impressions taken and enjoy paparazzi attention with a photo shoot against a tropical backdrop. Photos are then rendered into 3-D images of mandibles, which doctors use to plan ivories’ shift to their desired final positions. The straightening process itself outfits chomper sets with custom-made plastic aligners, which are replaced every two weeks as they gradually push teeth into orderly ranks. Made of clear, smooth plastic, these tusk trays hold numerous clear advantages over traditional braces, including easy removal for brushing and eating and virtual invisibility to friends, crushes, and amorous magnets. The first set of plastic aligners is included with this Groupon, as are monthly checkups to note patient progress toward gorgeous grins.
Though the patients at CNS Dental are all human, you still might catch a glimpse of a german shepherd mix. Jacob can occasionally be found alongside Dr. Cara Schantz, calming patients at the office on his days off from working as a certified therapy dog. Dr. Schantz's altruism doesn't just extend to Jacob, who makes regular appearances at the Powhatan Nursing Home courtesy of Fairfax Pets on Wheels. She also volunteers her dental services to Mission of Mercy projects in Virginia.
Back at Dr. Schantz’s home base, shimmering aqua tiles, mod-style chairs, and golden chandeliers that resemble models of atoms at a school for rich children adorn the waiting room. The retro, space-age feel gives way to the simplicity and natural light of the treatment rooms, where patients open wide for cleanings and exams. Dr. Schantz spends the rest of her office hours performing cosmetic and restorative treatments. An onsite oral surgeon places implants, performs extractions, and treats temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.
With services ranging from simple cleanings to more complex procedures, this dental practice has everything you’ll need out of a dental care headquarters. Endodontics, implants, wisdom teeth removal, gum care and orthodontics are just a sampling of the wide-range of services available within their walls. The clean, well-designed facility is packed full of all of the latest technology needed for high-quality care, and the dental professionals on staff will take pride in giving you a comfortable experience and a consistently beautiful smile. Check out the ‘spa-like environment’ for yourself and find out why Arlington residents are flocking to this office for all of their dental needs.
Beautiful, healthy smiles are the end goal at Advance Dental Care Center. But the journey to ear-to-ear grins can take many different paths. In addition to standard exams, Drs. Amir Zamani, Alfonso Patron, and Santiago Rueda can design treatment plans with implants, Invisalign, Zoom whitening, or other procedures. All three dentists are skilled in treating both kids, adults, and kids stuck in adult bodies.
